Lunation 1117 / 2070

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1117 of Meeus index or 2070 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 1117 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than next lunation 1118 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠246°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠246°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:31, this is 15 days after last apogee on 24 April 2090 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces.

1 day after its ascending node on 9 May 2090 at 23:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 3 May 2090 at 15:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.290°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.355° in the next southern standstill on 16 May 2090 at 12:41 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 13 May 2090 at 19:01 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
